A cat6 crossover adapter is an inline adapter that will attach between the end of a cat6 patch - or straight-through - cable, and the RJ45 socket you are trying to plug it into, and convert it into a crossover cable.
This adapter would be used when you need crossover cables, to connect two PC’s to each other without the use of a hub, or router, but only have a patch cable.
What is the difference between Patch Cable and Crossover Cable?
Crossover cables are most often used to connect two devices of the same type, for example two computers – via network interface controllers – or to connect two switches to each other. This is commonly used for gaming to create a wired local area network.
Patch cables, or straight-through cables are used to connect devices of different types, for example a computer to a network switch, a computer to a hub or a network switch to a hub. This is most commonly used to connect a device to the internet, either straight from your computer to your modem or router, or into a network switch.
